When have Self and WIlliams ever gone thru ANY mediocre stretch that Jay has gone thru, and I love Jay. Answer, NEVER. And Villanova has always been a very good BE job. Let's not act like he coaches Iona. It takes a special person and remarkable consistency with UNBELIEVABLE demands to coach at a Blue Blood like Kansas and UNC. Ask Billy Clyde G after his two years at Kentucky or Matt Doherty after his 3 years at UNC. Or how Tubby was run out of town after his run at Kentucky. What Roy did at Kansas was great and what he is doing at UNC is actually BETTER than Dean. And what Self is doing at Kansas is actually better than what Roy did. That is hard to fathom. Neither would survive at his job if they had the start Jay did at Nova or went thru a pretty mediocre 2-3 yr run earlier this decade that Jay did at Nova. You do understand that? Jay was able to survive PRECISELY BECAUSE the expectations are NOT THE SAME.

I've frequently been underwhelmed by their coaching and understand that the name of the school disproportionately helps both guys get nearly any kid they want. So I understand how they win even when being outcoached. I understand that they both have vast resources, but they choose to cheat anyway. Finally, I understand that they still don't win the big one nearly as much as they should.

There are only 3 active coaches with 2 or more National championships on their resume. I'm not including Pitino who had one vacated. And it's not like his championships happened 20 years ago. The guy is in his prime. If I had to pick one coach right now to head up my program, Jay would unequivocally be my first choice for a lot of reasons: age, morals, track record, etc etc etc How Jay isn't at least top 5 is beyond me.

By that definition Tom Izzo with one and Dean Smith with 2 are the same or slightly better than Kevin Ollie. Come on. The NC standard is not right. It matters but it is not the most important in an era of having to win 6 straight games and so much parity. Luck plays a large role in this.

Give you an example Jay Wight has 2 in 3 years. But do you know the other 5 years in this 7 year run in the new BE he has failed to reach past the second round. The only time he has reached the Round of 16 or better are his 2 NC runs. The other 5 years he has been bounced each time in the first weekend.

Jim Calhoun did not become a great coach because he beat Coach K and Duke in 1999 to win his first NC. That validated his greatness.

His greatness was establishing UCONN as one of if not the BEST program in the BE (surpassing stalwarts Syracuse, Georgetown) from 90-99. Winning or sharing 6 regular season BE titles in 10 years (90, 94,95.96, 98, 99) and winning the BE tourney 4 times in that stretch (90, 96, 98, 99).

And again here is Jay's first 3 years at Nova. Tell me the Kansas or UNC coach that could have had a similar 3 year stretch and been able to survive:

Hofstra: 122–85 (.589) 76–47 (.618)
Villanova Wildcats (Big East Conference[a]) (2001–present)
2001–02 Villanova 19–13 7–9 5th NIT Quarterfinal
2002–03 Villanova 15–16 8–8 T–3rd NIT First Round
2003–04 Villanova 18–17 6–10 11th NIT Quarterfinal

Now look at this for Self specifically look at the last 20 years at Illinois and Kansas (3 at Illinois and 17 at Kansas). He has won the regular season conference championship 15 times in the last 16 years at Kansas. 15 times overall in 17 years with 1 second place and 1 3rd place. Then if you take Illinois he won the regular season B10 title 2 times in 3 years finishing 2nd once. So in 20 straight years in Power 6 coaching Bill Self has won the regular season title 17 times in 20 years. He has won 82% of his regular season games since he has been at Kansas and almost 82% of his conference games at Kansas. That is insane in terms of how good that is over a 2 decade stretch. Insane. And ironically almost everyone agreed he may have had his most complete team at KU in years this year (canceled).

Pretty amazing that Bill Self hasn't lost more than 10 games in 22 years. Talk about the epitome of constant success.

By that rationale, look at coach K's first few years at Duke or Wooden's mediocre stretches at UCLA. Probably the 2 greatest coaches in the history of college basketball, and both had troubles along the way. I don't think anyone is knocking Self or Roy Williams, both are 2 of the greatest who ever coached. At the end of the day, one can use whatever criteria one wants to rank these coaches. I would probably rank them K, Williams, Jay, Self, Izzo. Pitino would be #2 if not for his vacated championship, etc etc. But IMO there has to huge emphasis put on # of national championships.
